I have an update from JoJo’s dad. I will quote his words as he said it best
“My baby was found right on the spot that I said he was I would like to thank everybody for their prayers and for their support. To my family all I can say is that I love you very much and I will never forget what my family and friends have done for me. My kids are my back bone and joe do will continue to be part of the backbone I will always love you son”
He told me he is truly thankful for everyone supporting him, it gave him strength and continues to do so.
I would like to continue the fundraiser at this time for a few reasons. One he is still having to pay for costs associated with his time in Washington. Two as we all know, there are high costs when a loved one has passed and we honor them as best we can. The third and final reason is this. Jose loves to ride his bicycle; he was planning a race this summer. JoJo assisted in the design of a bike that was brought to life by a cyclist enthusiast in Washington who met Jose. This bike will bear the signature of JoJo and his memory.
May the Lord Bless you & keep you Mangual Family as another Angel has left this earth, but his memory lives on in everyone he met and those he touched in spirit.
